Riker does it again

Riker just keeps on turning out great books. This one is no different. He went from Navy Seals to the Silent Service without a hitch. I have read every one of his books and I,m not going to stop now.

Could not put this book down!

Being a big fan of the techno-thriller genre, and a huge fan of submarines, buying this book was a no brainer. Now I was unfamiliar with the author, but Riker drops you right into the driver's seat of both the state-of-the-art Los Angeles class as well as the aging Grayback, and doesn't let you up for air. The book has something for everyone from SEAL teams to skulking Russian attack subs to a climax that has to be read! Talk about the edge of my seat! Someone read this, and go "hmm.. we could make that into a movie!" A throughly good read, and I can't wait until his next Silent Service book comes out in Spring 2001

Good for a plane ride

This book was a page turner. It held more than enough suspense to keep me going. While the character depth wasn't all it could be, you still cared about their well being. The action in this book was excellent, and even though the plot sounds thin, that is probably the way that information was found on the Russian Akula class subs. A fine read, and I'll watch for the next Silent Service to come out.

Enjoyable page-turner

This is an enjoyable page-turner. It's not Clancy's _Hunt for Red October_, and the plot pushes reality a bit, but anyone who liked _Red October_ should enjoy this book.
